Editorial Reviews

"This text is a well-organized introduction to many of the major components of content area literacy. It cites important research literature to support its pedagogical claims and viewpoints, and provides a large number of resources for both instructors and students." - Wolfram Verlaan, Texas A&M University, Corpus Christi "Comprehensive and user-friendly. It does a good job of showing how to teach literacy in all the content areas. Students will enjoy the practical applications and teachers will enjoy having information in one place." - Dr. Virginia S.
